safe and sound

We are safe and sound here after Irene blew through on Sunday night.  The wind howled all night and all Monday too.  There were over 500 'individual' power outages in the province and hundreds are still waiting for power to be restored.  We didn't lose our power and there were only branches and twigs of maples to be cleaned up. And the sun came out after lunch on Monday. We received about 60 mm  (6 inches) of rain here. We got off easy here when you consider all the terrible flooding in Vermont and Quebec and other areas.  The news video showing the devastation is heartbreaking to watch. 

It's a bit foggy again this morning with the promise of sunshine, warm temperatures
and light breezes. 

I'm preparing for my company - daughter Jennifer and grandson Ewan - who
will be flying in tonight from Alberta.

I can't wait to see them and give them lots of hugs.  It's been 8 months!

I hope to pop in now and then but I may be busy playing with an 11 month old.
In fact, I know I will be busy!  And Happy!

See you soon!




  1. I'm glad to hear that you are safe and sound. I haven't yet heard from my sister who is still in NB - perhaps it's time to call!

  2. Oh, thank goodness you're safe. Six inches of rain is a LOT, glad to hear you had no flooding.

  3. Enjoy the visit with your daughter and grandson Yes, you will be very busy, and you will enjoy every moment of it
    It's good to hear you came through hurricane Irene safely.

  4. Glad to hear you're safe. From the news report it seems like the rain swollen rivers was a huge problem. We usually get some rain (and actually we were hoping for it) from these hurricanes even though we're inland in Georgia but it totally missed us - not even a drop.

    Enjoy your visit!

  5. So glad things are OK. Have a wonderful time with your family. Don't you dare worry about your blog. Enjoy every minute.

  6. Hi Pamela,
    I'm glad you didn't sustain much damage either. The wind was high and broke off some of my Glads but that's about it. I would say the Creator was watching out for us. Have fun with your company.


  7. Glad all is well with you. Enjoy visiting with your grandson and daughter:)

  8. Happy to hear you faired well and enjoy your visit with your family!

  9. Hello my sweet friend,
    Have an absolutely marvelous time with your daughter and grandson. Get and give all the hugs and kisses that you possibly can!
    I am so glad you came through the hurricane safely, thank you Jesus!!!
    Hugs, Cindy

  10. Have a wonderful time with your family.
    I bet you are relieved that they aren't arriving to what could have been a mess after Irene blew through. So glad you are ok, friend.
    Have fun!

  11. Glad all is well, and enjoy your special visitors!

  12. It was an amazing storm!!

    I know you will enjoy your company so very much Pamela.

  13. Enjoy your company! And don't worry about playing in Blogdom when you have such delightful entertainment right there. ☺

  14. Hi Pamela - back from Calif. and had both the earthquake and Irene to contend with........right here in North Carolina!
    Glad you escaped serious hurricane damage as did we inland in NC. Tree debris to clean up and later a neighbor's tree fell and took out all the power on the street for 1/2 a day, but nothing like the people on the coast.

    Hugs - Mary

  15. Hi Pamela, I am happy that you were spared the worst part of Irene. We drove like crazy to get back to Quebec city before she touched down in Tadoussac. Later that night the road caved in! We felt very blessed to get into our room and sit it out by the fire. (no electricity but comfort of our home)
